New Age Pantsulas In Bo-Kaap: Watch K.O. & Cassper Nyovest’s Music Video For ‘Waya Waya’

Watch K.O. and Cassper Nyovest's Cape Town-shot video for "Waya Waya."

K.O. just released visuals to his Cassper Nyovest-assisted single "Waya Waya," from the 2-track EP Two Piece Two Piece.


On the video, which was directed by Cape Town-based filmmaker Andile Sinqoto, was filmed in The Mother City, in Bo-Kaap and in some parts of the Cape Flats.

The two new age pantsulas render some dance moves alongside a crowd excited extras who also gyrate and proudly sip their ngudus. The video being shot in the hood is a fit for "Waya Waya," as the song borrows a lot from kwaito, just like a lot of K.O.'s and Cassper's songs.

K.O. did hint on Twitter a few weeks ago that he will shoot videos for both songs on Two Piece. So, best believe there will also be visuals for "Fire Emoji," which features AKA. It's about to get litty.

Watch the video for "Waya Waya" below, and listen to Two Piece here:

Cameroon Holds Vigil to Remember Children Killed in School Attack

Residents in Kumba paid their respects to the seven lives lost, and those injured during the attack over the weekend.

In the latest tragedy to come from Cameroon's historically violent clash between Anglo and Francophone citizens, seven children were murdered after attackers stormed a school with guns and machetes over the weekend.

In what has been deemed as the "darkest and saddest day," by Bishop Agapitus Nfon of Kumba, armed attackers stormed the Mother Francisca International Bilingual Academy, targeting students aged 9 to 12. The tragic event saw dozens of children injured, some critically.

The attack has shocked the nation, with both local and international agencies condemning the horrible offense. On Monday, Cameroonian President Paul Biya denounced the "horrific murder" of the school children, and alluded to the "appropriate measures" being taken in order to bring justice to the families of the victims. Prime Minister Dion Ngute Joseph shared his condolences via a tweet saying, "I bow before the memory of these innocent kids."

The Cameroonian presidency and governing body have blamed Anglophone 'separatists' for the attack, though the group claims no part in the attack.

Human rights groups, however, have blamed both opposing parties, as the conflict has led to the death of over 3,000 deaths and resulted in more than 700,000 Cameroonians fleeing their homes and the country.
